[audio]Mullaney Favorite, Ladies' Pantalettes - Eddie Mullaney and Patrick Stack
Irish bagpipes and violin, Victor 79012. Stack was from Co. Kerry, and is listed as source for many tunes in Francis O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903). Mullaney was born in Chicago, his family moving back to Co. Mayo before returning to America. Their music is a fascinating blend of Stack's somewhat mournful and wailing fiddle, and Mullaney's clean piping, full of graces and trills, very typical of pipers recorded in America at this time...

[audio]The Cook in the Kitchen - Tom Ennis, Redie Johnson, and Tom Quigley
Irish bagpipes, fiddle, and accordion, Gennet 5054, John Muller - piano. The second part differs slightly from the usual setting, swinging up to D in the fourth bar, a very nice variant on this commonplace jig.

[audio]George White's Favorite, Colonel Fraser - Leo Rowsome
Irish bagpipes solo, REX 15044. George White was said to be a NYC bar owner, honored in this reel first recorded by Sligo fiddler Paddy Sweeney. When I was learning the pipes my tutor (who was a big Leo fan) always insisted Leo played the 1812 Overture on the regulators in Colonel Fraser. Never quite heard it myself! This is one of the great piping reels, and a tricky tune to play, found in innumerable versions on all instruments...

[audio]The Salamanca - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, HMV B1947. Piper Michael Gallagher recorded this tune around the same time as Walsh, and Gallagher's recording may be heard on this site as well. The two versions differ greatly in ornamentation, and while both are very bouncy performances Walsh's has even more swing. A friend of mine transcribed some of these early piping recordings, and set some of the reels in 12/8, usually used for jigs, instead of the usual 4/4, to convey this swing...

[audio]Dunphy's Hornpipe, The Woods of Kilkenny - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, HMV B1930. Walsh would record Dunphy's again in 1933. Woods of Kilkenny is a tune from O'Neill's. Walsh's student Tommy Kearney said that Walsh would go on the radio and sight read tunes from O'Neill's "fast as the reel." Like many other musicians pipers were fond of "The Book" and used it to expand their repetoire.

[audio]The Fisherman's Widow, The Walls of Liscara - Jigs - Shaun O'Nolan
Irish bagpipe solo, unknown piano player, Columbia 33070-F. O'Nolan billed himself as the "Wicklow Piper," but his piping seems to have little in common with famous Leinster pipers such as the Doran brothers or Leo Rowsome; his charming punchy style is much more reminescent of others who recorded in America such as Tom Ennis. O'Nolan recorded a few piping solos in 1925-26 but his subsequent recorded output over the next five years were vocal discs, backed by a piano, sometimes with clarinet and ...

[audio]Trim the Velvet - Reels - Tom Ennis
Irish bagpipes solo, Cardinal 2029, John Muller - piano. This is Ennis's first released recording of this pair of reels. The second tune he called the Maid Behind the Bar on his 1923 recording, which was the usual title for it. In O'Neill's Music of Ireland it was called Kiss the Maid Behind the Barrel, which has become the more standard title. Amusingly enough some musicians play one tune and not the other, as they have structural similiarities which can lead to confusion about which tune is be...

[audio]Connaughtman's Rambles, The Frost is All Over - Tom Ennis, Redie Johnson, Tom Quigley
Irish bagpipes, accordion, fiddle, Gennet 5040, John Muller - piano. The tunes are played in reverse order of their listing, as is the case with the other set of tunes on the flipside, curiously enough. This occasionally happened with 78s; Michael Coleman recorded a pair of reels in the 30s, The Wild Irishman/O'Rourke's, the titles of which were reversed, with the result that his Wild Irishman is to this day called O'Rourke's.

[audio]Ragan's Jig, Nora Greena - Tom Ennis
Irish pipes, unknown piano player, Columbia 33394-F, also released in England. Sligo fiddler Paddy Killoran recorded a three part version of the first jig under the title the Luckpenny, and it is his version and name that are generally used nowadays. The title of the second jig is a corruption of the Irish Nóra Chríonna (Wise Nora). Such corruptions are common in old tunebooks. The great Clare piper Willie Clancy called this setting "Patsy Touhey's version," according to Pat Mitchell, editor o...

[audio]The Stack of Barley Medley (Alexander's, Dunphy's) - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, Decca F3816. Walsh had recorded Dunphy's in 1924, which can also be heard on this site. Alexander's is printed in O'Neill's Music of Ireland (1903), but strangely enough not in the more common Dance Music of Ireland (1907). Nevertheless it seems to have always been a popular piper's tune. Some more instances of him using the Scotch Snap (a sixteenth note leading into an eighth note) are present in both tunes, a device which was rarely heard after the 78 era...

[audio]Biddy From Ballyvourney, Rolling Down the Hill - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, F2309. Walsh is heard here playing a flat set of pipes, unlike the concert pitch set(s) used on his other recordings. Walsh's student Tommy Kearney said that Walsh was prone to wanting another set of pipes - even if they were on the other side of the country, he had to have them. Sweet Biddy Of Ballyvourney is in O'Neill's; likely this is another instance of Walsh expanding his repertoire through sight reading...

Irish bagpipes, Gennet 5283, Harry Race - piano. This is Ennis's second recording of these reels; he'd record them once more, in 1929. I came across a remark once that he tended to mix up the parts of the two tunes as he went along, but don't hear that myself, although it can happen.

Irish bagpipes solo, Gennet 5356, Federic D. Wood - piano. As far as I know no biographical information has come to light about McLaughlin. His piping has much in common with Tom Ennis's, lively danceable music cleanly played. Both of these jigs, down to the settings and regulator accompaniment, were also recorded by Ennis; Judy Hynes Ennis called Nancy Hynes, and a setting from his father's piping is in the Music of Ireland...

Irish bagpipes and fiddle, Gennet 5003, Paddy Muldoon - piano. Three hearty tunes from O'Neill's collections. All three are still heard today and the second reel especially is still a universal favorite. Gerrity made a couple of solo 78s, one of which also was titled the Bush in Bloom.

Irish bagpipe chanter, fiddle, flute, unknown label and recording date. The exact name of this ensemble eludes me at the moment. Martin Feeney is the flute player; the piper is Andy Conroy, a Roscommon musician who played in an exceedingly staccato style, almost experimental in ways, which he puts on hold for these lively sets of tunes.

[audio]Walsh's Favorite, The Butcher's March - Tom Ennis
Irish bagpipes solo, Emerald 10394. Walsh's Favorite is an amalgam of two jigs in O'Neill's books: Hinchey's Delight (first part) and Jackson's Maid (second parts). This shuffling about of components of tunes is very common in the folk process, where musicians learn material orally and often forget titles, phrases, or sections of tunes; or mangle/distort same. Ennis's tune is very attractive melodically, and a good tune for a learner as it only ascends two notes into the chanter's second octave...

Irish bagpipes solo, HMV IM528. Byrne's is an ever popular tune, also recorded by Michael Coleman and the Ballinakill Ceili Band on 78. Kilfinane (Cill Fhíonáin in Irish) is a small market town in southeast County Limerick, and this hornpipe was contributed to Francis O'Neill's books by Tipperary fiddler Edward Cronin. Cronin composed tunes and this may be one of his originals. This is likely an example of Leo adapting tunes from books, although he may have learned it from a Munster musician -...

[audio]The Blackbird (Decca version) - Liam Walsh
Irish bagpipes solo, Decca F3817. Walsh had recorded this earlier, but this version is much more exciting, with almost a "Scotch snap" feel in places, and an amazing syncopation between regulators and chanter, that is characteristic of the sides he made for Decca in 1933. Also the tempo is much more moderate than the often rushed speeds of his earlier sides. The flip side of this was Walsh's version of the reel the Bucks of Oranmore, which may be heard on Rounder's CD From Galway to Dublin.

Irish bagpipes solo, Cardinal 2029, John Muller - piano. Ennis also recorded this tune (and the same set of reels on the flipside of this disc) in 1923 as a duet with fiddler James Morrison. Ennis's recordings always say "Long Dance" for this kind of tune; another term, "Set Dance," is more commonly used now. These are tunes in jig time (such as this one) or hornpipe time (the Blackbird for instance), which have a few extra bars, usually in the second part...

Ennis had earlier recorded this medley twice solo - and in duet with fiddler James Morrison - company records show rejected takes of it too! The source in O'Neill's Music of Ireland for Trim the Velvet is Tom's father John, also a piper. The second reel was called the Maid Behind the Bar on most old 78s but is generally now called Kiss the Maid Behind the Barrel.

A tunnel collapse left him in a wheelchair, and he took up the pipes, also making the instrument.

Irish bagpipes solo, Victor 18366. Fiddler Michael Coleman recorded another Murphy's hornpipe in the 30's, with multiple parts. "Clog" was a term for a type of complex hornpipe suited for dancing in clog boots; generally these were fiddle compositions, usually in flat keys. Despite the title this tune isn't usually considered a clog. Ennis later recorded this as a duet with fiddler James Morrison, as the Londonderry hornpipe...

O'Neill named this reel in his honor, remarking that Big Pat would swing his legs to keep time, unlike the more typical practice of stomping feet.
